One Thing Straight is an app being developed for iOS and Android operating systems for individuals with Parkinson’s disease. The app is designed to offer feedback on sitting and standing posture by sending notifications to the user throughout the day. The app is aware of the individual’s posture using a microcontroller + sensor combo worn on the user’s shirt collar. This intervention will allow wearers to fix their bent posture, which is associated with the disease. On cue individuals can change their posture because often the bent posture is caused by a problem perceiving the bent posture as being straight.
